Purple People Pleaser

With a "floral flair", this one seems to be verbalizing it's attitude quite nicely. I am embarassed to admit that I cannot recall the name of this particular plant, however I believe it may belong in the Lupine or primrose family...but I could be dead wrong and I have been too busy at work to check. Further, the MOST embarrasing aspect, here, is that we purchased this and planted it adjacent to our "postage stamp"-sized patio! I guess I better get busy and find out what this is! Hopefully my sister Peggy can help me out of this jam!

** Staples Singers - "Respect Yourself"

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire
